Jordan McErlean is an Associate in the Litigation & Restructuring Department in the Cayman Islands office of Conyers Dill & Pearman. Jordan joined Conyers as an Associate in 2017 after completing his Articles of Clerkship with the Firm.
Jordan’s practice covers all areas of international commercial litigation. Jordan has advised clients such as investment funds, insolvency professionals, accounting professionals and other entities on a range of complex insolvency, restructuring and other commercial litigation issues.
Jordan was a member of the Cyber-terrorism Project (a cross-disciplinary collaborative project which has published various reports and journal articles on cyber terrorism and related areas) and still maintains a research interest in legal questions surrounding the interaction of the law and the internet and the interaction of human rights with the British Government’s counter-terrorism strategy (CONTEST).
Given Jordan’s prior experience with cyber-security, he is well placed to provide advice to litigating parties on the impact of Cayman Islands laws in the tech sphere, including for example advising insolvency practitioners on the legal tools that can be used to aid in recovering and litigating crypto assets.
Jordan also regularly advises in respect of various contentious and non-contentious employment matters, including for example advice in respect of an employee’s rights and obligations when their employment is terminated under their employment contract (e.g. restrictive covenants) and/or under the Labour Law (2011 Revision).
